Alright, I just have to get on and write about this one. I just heard what Pat Robertson said on the tv about Haiti. Now, I don’t mean to be disrespectful to a person of God, and in fact, I am excited that I am about to help one in my local community. I am going to use my photography to help a local church with a fundraiser. So, no, I have never believed in being disrespectful to a  minister, but when I heard what he said, it really did get to me and I gotta grip on this one!

Whatever happened to the old saying that when someone is already down, you don’t add to it. Well, that’s not the saying. I can’t remember what it was, but I am sure you understand what I am getting at. He is supposed to be a minister and must not read his bible. Christians are supposed to be compassionate towards those in rough times. A Christian is supposed to have an attitude of humility and they do not judge, nor believe they are better than others. As Billy Graham’s son for example, he is genuinely trying to reach out and help them.

Well, apparently, Mr. Robertson does believe he falls way above others and from what I understand this is not the first time, he has said something like this. Also, with 9/11 and when Katrina hit. He needs to read the bible more and look to Jesus’ example. Jesus never turned anyone away and when you look at His life, there was only time he ever even lost his temper and that was with the money changers in the Temple. It seems the money changers had a scam going in the Temple and so Jesus stated, “This is my Father’s House and you have made it into a den of thieves“. The money changers in the Temple. Hmm, sounds like a lot of television evangelists today who beg and get rich off the money they are sent, doesn’t it?  

Well, I am not going to judge him. That is really not for me, although he seems to judge a lot of others. He pretty much says that Haiti brought things upon themselves. I really wish he would keep his mouth shut. I wouldn’t wish what is going on in Haiti on my worst enemy. Start reading your bible more often, Mr Robertson and look to Christ’s example and the way he reached out to help humanity

Well, anyways, I was getting on here today and just had to blog about this
